Nigerian Scams

Iraqi Stash, but Really Nigerian

This scam is similar to what I expect f rom my Skype buddy pretending to be a brigadier general in Iraq.


Good day and compliments, I know this letter will definitely come to you as a huge surprise, but I implore you to take the time to go through it carefully as the decision you make will go off a long way to determine my future and continued existence. Please allow me to introduce myself. I am Lt. Ken William, a US Army serving in the 3rd Infantry Division in Iraq.

I am desperately in need of assistance and I have summoned up courage to contact you, presently am in Iraq and I found your contact particulars in an address journal. I am seeking your assistance to evacuate some funds which was stashed in a Trunk Box, to the States or any safe country of your choice; as far as I can be assured that it will be safe in your care until I complete my service here. This is no stolen money and there are no dangers involved.

Some money in various currencies was discovered and concealed in barrels with piles of weapons and ammunition at a location near one of Saddam Hussein’s old Presidential Palaces in Tikrit Iraq, during a rescue operation, view the link below for verification.

It was agreed by all parties present that the money be shared amongst us. Although, some were reported to be sent back.
This might appear as an illegal but I tell you what? No compensation can make up for the risks we have taken with our lives in this hell hole. I have now found a secured way of getting the package out of Iraq for you to pick up. I do not know for how long I will remain here as I have been lucky to have survived 2 suicide bomb attacks by Pure Divine intervention. This and other reasons put into consideration have prompted me to reach out for help.

If it might be of interest to you then endeavor to contact me and we would work out the necessary formalities but I pray that you are discreet about this mutually benefiting relationship.
Should you have any reason to reject this offer, please and please delete this message immediately, as any leakage of this information will be detrimental to the US soldiers here in Iraq and especially to me.

Seriously, I want you to help me.

Lt. Ken William
